Felix Dickinson @ People Must Jam - October 6th 2012

After two rammed events with Frank Booker and Leo Zero, we have hop, skipped and boogied to an all new inner city space to bring you our October party - with Felix Dickinson of Cynic records out of the U.K.

A prodigious remixer and re-editer, Felix also works under a multitude of pseudonyms and a quick search of most discerning jocks record bags will most likely uncover a few of his tunes.

He has been DJing and producing music for nearly 20 years, and early in his career organized a four-day free festival in Sussex in collaborating with the D.I.Y. sound system and his fellow DJs from the Tonka crew. The Police roadblocks and helicopters couldn't stop the party, as it was pre-Criminal Justice Act, and 4.000 people danced all weekend.

Following a move to Brighton, Felix and mates set up the monthly Slack nights, which although being held on Monday nights would regularly attract party goers from up and down the country, and would always be followed by an after party down on the beach or some local warehouse.

When Slack ended it allowed Felix to change direction, and he set up the Ugly Music record label which released music from K-Alexi, Underground Evolution, DJ Harvey and Jaime Read, among others. Around this time Felix began his DJ residency at the Joint nightclub with Jaime Read (L.H.A.S) and Bobby Coulman (Soft Rocks) where he played every month from 1995 to 2000.

Since his move to London from the South Coast in 2000, Felix has been producing records under a string of aliases including LHAS Inc., Foolish and Sly, Das Etwas, The Mythical Beasts and Dedication.

He's remixed for labels like Jazzy Sport, Far Out, DJ History, Strut and DFA as well as pulling together essential re-edits and re-mixes for Horse Meat Disco crew. He was also asked to compile Volume 5 of the highly revered “Originals” comps on Claremont 56, which displayed some deep digging skills and a love of obscure disco and Chicago house.

His DJing has taken him as far as America, Japan, Australia, Hawaii and beyond as well as playing at Glastonbury with the New York Downlow. Now he is also resident for Bad Passion, one of the freshest underground parties in London.

Join us on 6th October, 10 til late at an all new space for an extended set of disco, boogie, balearic and all points in between from Felix, with supports from Matt Trousdale, Pete Dot and JMS.  

As always the party is B.Y.O and strictly limited capacity. Venue details to be released to ticket holders and our mailing list the week of the party. Hit up to be part of the action. 

Tickets are $25 and available from Resident Advisor as of now, expect to pay more on the door if not sold out.

See you in a few weeks on the dance floor.
